Fall in Love
For some mysterious reason, this fall sunflower card makes me hungry for candy corn! Can’t you taste it? I’m always ready for a new season and this card is just the ticket as autumn approaches. The Plaid Tidings Designer Paper from the newStampin’ Up Holiday Catalog has a nice fall surprise inside. There are papers for almost any season, including this tasty orange and yellow plaid sheet I just had to use on this card.
First, start with a regular 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base out of Calypso Coral cardstock. The triangles are cut from two 4″ x 5 1/4″ rectangles of Whisper White and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. Cut each rectangle into 4 triangles by cutting diagonally from corner to corner both directions. Each rectangle makes 4 triangles of which you will use 2 of each paper. Create a rectangle on the card front with 2 plaid triangles and 2 white triangles. Then adhere with tape runner (I use Stamp’n Seal).
The beautiful fall sunflower in the center is created with 3 sunflowers. The first layer is stamped in Calypso Coral Ink on So Saffron cardstock. Then cut along some of the petal lines and curled the ends with a bone folder to give it added texture and attached it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Cut the two top flower layers from the Sunflower Dies in Calypso Coral and So Saffron cardstock and curl the edges carefully with a bone folder or pencil. Trim the inside of the center of the top sunflower so that part of the center of the underneath one shows through. Embellish the bottom center sunflower with gold pearls.
Finally, stamp the sentiment with the Lovely You Stamp Set on 3/4″ cardstock and trim the ends with the Lovely Label Pick a Punch. This card was cased from a beautiful pink and blue sunflower card by Windy Ellard.
